ルンがピカッと光ったら
歌:ワルキューレ

「準備はいいんかね?」

誰かが噂している
世界はいつか終わるって
嘘だよそれじゃ当たり前すぎる

ある時、空を見上げた
未来を今に感じた
あなたの風に シンクロしたんだ

女の子でいられる
居場所、見つけちゃったよ
だからもう やるっきゃない
止められない

「覚悟するんよ!」

ピカッとルンが光れば
Wow woh wow woh
わたしは 恋に落ちるの
Wow woh wow woh

パリル パーリラ
あなたのせいで
パリラ ルンピカ
無敵なんだよ

誰かが苦しんでいる
戦うことはつらいって
ダメだよ それじゃ前へ進めない

その時、空を揺らした
あなたの描く軌跡が
わたしに歌う勇気をくれたの

生きること それだけで
まるで時間がないよ
だからもう 揺るがない
この思いは

「ルンピカビーム!」

ピカッとルンが光れば
Wow woh wow woh
あなたは 高く飛べるの
Wow woh wow woh

タリル ターリラ
わたしの愛は
タリラ ルンピカ
無限なんだよ

ピカッとルンが光れば
Wow woh wow woh
世界は 恋に落ちるの
Wow woh wow woh

パリル パーリラ
風を感じて (huh huh)
パリラ ルンピカ
光りつづけて (huh huh)

何があっても
わたしの恋は (huh huh)
何がなんでも
無敵なんだよ

「ゴリゴリアタック!」

When My Rune Begins to Glow
Performed by Walküre

“Are ya ready for this?”

Someone’s been saying the world is gonna end
They go, “I don’t know when but I know it’s gonna end”
Kidding, folks, who doesn’t know that? No need to pretend

There was a time I went and looked up into the sky
And felt the future there was just waiting to come by
It’s ’cause I’m right in sync with the wind that blows when you fly

I’ve found a place where I can be free
To be the girl that I want to be
That’s why I’ve gotta get cracking now
Can’t hold me back now!

“Ya better be prepared!”

When my rune begins to glitter enough
Wow wow wowow wow
That is when you’ll see me fall in love
Wow wow wowow wow

Pali-lu pali-la
All because of you
Pali-la runeflash, and
I’m on top of the world

Somewhere out there someone is lying in pain
They say, “I’m done with war, I’m not fighting again”
Buck up, hey, you’re not gonna win if you only complain

That was when I looked up and sang into the air
I saw the trails you left and my voice came out clear
Seeing how you flew gave me courage to be there

Just going through life takes so much from you
There’s barely time for what you want to do
That’s why I cannot afford to be slow
I’ve gotta let you know!

“Runeflash beam!”

When my rune begins to glitter enough
Wow wow wowow wow
That is when you’ll fly on high above
Wow wow wowow wow

Tali-lu tali-la
The love I feel for you
Tali-la runeflash, is
Totally out of the world

When my rune begins to glitter enough
Wow wow wowow wow
That is when the world will fall in love
Wow wow wowow wow

Pali-lu pali-la
Feel the wind in flight (Whoo! Whoo!)
Pali-la runeflash, and
Keep on shining your light (Whoo! Whoo!)

Whatever happens, the
Love that I feel for you (Whoo! Whoo!)
Whatever we do, is
Totally out of the world

“Smashing attack!”

 
Translation notes

  • パリラ ルンピカ: “ルンピカ” (runpika) is one of Freyja’s catchphrases from the show. It combines the words “ルン” (run), meaning “rune”, and “ピカ” (pika), meaning “flash/glitter/sparkle” (the same “ピカ” as in “Pikachu”). Here it is translated simply as “runeflash”.
  • 「ゴリゴリアタック!」: “ゴリゴリ” (gorigori) is another of Freyja’s catchphrases. She uses it to mean something like “awesome”, so here it is translated as “smashing”.

Update July 17: Lyrics checked with album scans.
